Natalie Babbitt is the award-winning author of the modern classics “Tuck Everlasting,” “The Eyes of the Amaryllis,” “Kneeknock Rise” and many other original books for young people. She began her career in 1966 as the illustrator of “The Forty-Ninth Magician,” a collaboration with her husband. She says that “when I was a preschooler, I wanted to be a pirate, and then when I started school, I wanted to be a librarian. But in the fourth grade, I got my copy of “Alice in Wonderland/Alice Through the Looking-Glass” and decided once and for all that I wanted to be an illustrator of stories for children. Her new book is “The Moon Over High Street” (Scholastic/Michael Di Capua Books).
